Kakamega has registered the highest number of teams with 162, followed by Bungoma (152), Busia (64), and Vihiga (63), respectively.
Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa expressed delight at the high number of registrations and anticipates a bigger and better tournament.

The best players will form an All-Star team and visit Spain for a 10-day training boot camp.
There is additional prize money at the national finals level, which will see the most disciplined team take home KES 100,000, while the Best Girl player, Girls Top Scorer and Girls Best Keeper will take home KES 50,000 each.
